Regardless, Trumplings still take to social media to proclaim their idol (Donald Trump's) innocence. In fact, some Trumplings continue to submit their "proof" of the president's innocence by submitting Letters to the Editors of newspapers nationwide. Of course there is one problem with all of these letters. They all proclaim Trump is innocent because the Mueller investigation has yet to come up with evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Mr. Trump or his campaign - except Flynn, Papadopoulos, and Gates have already pled guilty while others are hanging out - probably for a plea bargain. (See: www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/2/20/17031772/mueller-indictments-grand-jury). So next time Trumplings claim the Mueller investigation is a "Witch Hunt" based on nothing more than "Liberal political hackery", remind them people don't get indicted by Grand Juries and then plead guilty when there is no evidence of wrongdoing. Obviously something is still "in the cards" with the Mueller team and to demand his investigation stop short of hunting down every shred of evidence that may prove or disprove collusion or illegal activity by anyone, including the President of the United States is mind-numbing.
Speaking of mind-numbing, while the media focuses in on virtually everything except what goes on in the halls of Congress, Americans seem "out of the loop" when it comes to the shenanigans being played by the Congressional GOP. How so? According to the Associated Press, the GOP-led Congress engaged in more political games this past week. In the House, the GOP blocked "a parliamentary attempt by Democrats to force a floor debate on a bill that would require all presidents (including Trump) to publicly disclose their tax returns for the three years preceding their candidacy for the Oval Office." (H.R. 305). The GOP defeated the effort by a vote of 226-189. Why would members of Congress be so cautious when requiring presidential candidates disclose their tax returns? Do they know GOP candidates that may have "suspicious" returns? So the beat goes on. Party politics seems to take a step forward and common sense is again tossed into the "back seat." Are Americans aware that our Congress is run by political sellouts? Probably, but what will they do about it come election time? Instead of complaining, voting for change would be a great help to a nation afflicted by partisan tribal politics instead of patriotic concern for the well-being of our great nation.
As President Andrew Jackson once wrote; "It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their own selfish purposes." Midterm elections can't seem to come fast enough. Have a great week!
